The Egyptian picked up a thigh strain, as per the report but Hany Ramzy, the assistant coach, added that this was not a big injury.
The coach was quoted by the Guardian as saying:
“The initial diagnosis confirmed that the injury is a muscle strain and there is no possibility of muscle rupture.
“It is not a big injury. We support him with all our energy and we hope he will return as soon as possible.”
This will come as some relief for the Liverpool fans as Salah is a key player for the team. The 26-year-old hasn’t hit the heights from last season and has three goals from eight Premier League games this season.
Our next clash is against Huddersfield once the international break is over. Salah would have started against the Terriers, and some fans were upset about the injury while others expected the forward to get a bit of a break now.

Think Salah might misses the next game but will be OK after the international break, he has a week to rest. Didn’t seem that serious

Egyptian FA playing Salah the full 90 mins after a super hectic period with little to no rotation is peak incompetence. https://t.co/iUkJCePA4v

why was it intended he plays the full 90 minutes ? Irresponsible really for such a high profile player in a game that was won

Break might do him good actually.

So tell me in a qualifier, being up 4-0 at that time you’ll sub 3 players but not your star?

Might give klopp the option to rest him now till the Arsenal game in November. The guy needs a break in my opinion
